02-May-2004 -- Roger and Wendy Christen attempted to visit 19S 48E after we successfully visited 19S 49E and on the same return trip from Toamasina along N2. The visit to 19S 49E was a remarkable experience in itself. Check it out.
The approach to 19S 48E is along the N2 as it meanders through a long valley before climbing in the mountains up to the Antananarivo plateau.
We are planning to attempt a visit within the next month.
